On Tuesday, we put a call out to sign a letter to Judge Walker, in the Perry v. Schwarzenegger case, which seeks to over-turn Proposition 8 on the basis of it being unconstitutional. The presiding Judge (Walker) had asked for comment on whether the case should be televised or not, based on high public interest. Although Judge Walker had given until this morning for comments to be submitted, he made a public statement on Wednesday stating that he would allow the case to be recorded for delayed viewing on YouTube. Despite this fact, the comment period remains open until this morning.
We put up a form on our site, allowing people to digitally sign the letter. Over 140 people responded, which is pretty amazing for lil’ ol’ EQN! Yesterday, we mail-merged the respondents information onto physical, printed versions of the letters, and sent them to both Judge Walker, and Judge Hamilton. We are happy to state that both have received their letters! (To verify, head to the FedEx website and input the following two tracking numbers: 870546780077, 870546780066.)
We’ll keep you informed of what the final decision is, when we hear it!
